“…economic collapse would be a Godsend is overwhelming. …”
For sure! Those that would be most damaged, according to wealth, would be those connected to the central banking industry. They would be wiped out because their wealth is dependent on the continuing scam of forcing fiat money on the rest of us. That requires that they drive down the PM markets periodically by flooding them with futures contracts and actual sales of bullion. These markets are now well into backwardization, which means they are subject to the law of diminishing returns.
